Clarity Haynes: Bearing Witness 

The Breast Portrait Project from 1998 to the Present

Clarity Haynes’ Breast Portrait Project offers the opportunity to consider the body in all its physical and metaphorical complexity.  Almost twenty years since its inception, this series  bears witness to human dignity and vulnerability rendered  in larger-than-life paintings and in smaller easel-size pastels.

Len Davis - Recent Work

I have eclectic taste. That’s why I’m so fascinated by the use of mixed media. I like mixed media because of the outcome of combining several elements, creating various textures and color to evoke a thought and mood in the stories I tell. It’s like a pizza with everything on it. Once you take that first bite, you’re inundated with flavor. And that’s what I strive for in my work.
